About this event

  • Date and time Thu 25 May 2023 from 8:30am to 5:15pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Clinical Immunology and Allergy, Allergy Academy

The Allergy Academy is proud to partner again with the Royal Society of Medicine to put together a joint event focusing on new developments in allergy medicine. We have gathered experts on the 21st-century pragmatic implementation of clinical care for common conditions (food allergies) to guide us through the latest evidence surrounding the prevention and future of food allergies.

This year, our aims ensure we are putting patients in the driving seat by focusing on their needs and value-based care that allows us to tailor appropriate management for infantile eczema and food allergydelayed food allergy and food immunotherapy.

By attending this event, participants will be updated on the latest evidence in food allergy and feel more confident in the management of patients with: 

  • Early eczema and skin barrier management with suspected allergies
  • Delayed food allergies - mast cell disorders, gut symptoms, wheat sensitivity 
  • Food immunotherapy such as boiled peanut and multiple food immunotherapy, how this field will develop in the future, and the use of commercial products

Follow us on:
